Comments about oreilly Java in a Nutshell:

I teach Java at a Community College so I'm always looking for good reference material for my students. The style of this book is quite approachable but also fairly complete in its exposition.

Only the beginning chapters were currently available and I am still reading Chapter 2. But I like what I see.

There does need to be quite a bit of editing done on this book because I found many mistakes in typography as well as program code. I'm hoping that this situation will improve in future updates of the book
